A novel Gaussian approximation based mixture reduction algorithm is proposed for semi-blind joint channel tracking and symbol detection for spatial multiplexing multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with frequency-flat time-selective channels. The proposed algorithm is based on a modified sequential Gaussian approximation detector (SGA) which takes into account channel uncertainty, and the first order generalized pseudo-Bayesian (GPB1) channel estimator. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm performs better than the conventional and computationally expensive decision-directed method with Kalman filter based channel estimation and a posteriori probability (APP) symbol detection.
